A 52.7m climb. Looking out from the top ⏩ looking down ⏩ climbing ⏩ climbing #gloucestertree #high
Gloucester tree climb, not for me, but the little 7yr old up there in pink did an amazing job getting to the top in bare feet. #treetops #treetopclimb #gloucestertree #pembertonwa #travelaustralia #exploreaustralia #caravanningoz #caravanningaustralia
Jetzt kommt unser erster richtiger geplanter Stop und der war im Gloucester Nationalpark. Alleine der Weg dahin und dadurch war beeindruckend, die riesigen Bäume links und rechts von der Straße einfach nur Wahnsinn! Uns gefiel der Wald so sehr das wir des öfteren Nebenstraßen nahmen und Zwischenstopps einlegten, um etwas in den Wald hinein zu laufen oder die Aussicht zu genießen. Damit überraschte uns Australien das aller erste mal so richtig! 👍
Made it through Day 1. Visited Pemberton and camped on the river at Moon's crossing. Didn't get much sleep but so far all is well 👍 • • • • #vanlife #troopylife #gloucestertree #pemberton #explorewa #4x4 #troopcarriersofaustralia #camping #moonscrossing #travelaustralia

Back in the day this tree was used as a fireman's lookout. Now you can go and climb this using the metal poles sticking out of the tree. The views from up their must be amazing! #adventure #travel #australia #backpacker #wa #westernaustralia #explore #roadtrip #albany #gloucestertree #climb
Have you been to the #gloucestertree ? @peached_as took some ripper photos.... 😎🇦🇺 #caravanningwithkids ・・・ The Gloucester Tree 🌲 This beauty is a retired fire lookout tree . Now if your the adventures type, you can climb 53 meters up to the lookout just for fun! We're not ashamed to admit our daughters are braver than us 😵 There was no way I was going to attempt this climb! {Especially with the huge group of spectators at the bottom commentating on everyone's climbs 😅} #pemberton

•Pemberton - Australie 🇦🇺 • • •Voici notre étape « grand frisson » 😱. • •Dans la petite ville de Pemberton on peut grimper tout en haut du Gloucester tree 🌲: un arbre de 53m de haut ! • • •Des barreaux sont plantés dans l’arbre formant un genre d’échelle en colimaçon bordée par un petit filet, aucune sécurité ni ligne de vie 😰. • • •Clem s’est dégonflée après une très belle tentative à moins de 10m 😂. Jojo a grimpé à toute vitesse et est monté tout en haut 💪. • • •La vue n’est pas si exceptionnelle mais l’ascension et la descente réservent leur lot d’adrénaline 🔥. • • • • • • #lesrouxroots #backpackers #australie #pemberton #gloucestertree #nationalpark #australia #southwest #westcoast #roadtrip #vanaménagé #campervan #ontheroad #whv #couplelife #couplegoals #travel #tourdumonde #voyage #leroutard #tourtereaux #globe #worldtour #frenchboy #frenchgirl #lonelyplanet
Wir staunten nicht schlecht, als wir vor diesem riesigen Baum standen. Genauer gesagt ist der Gloucester Tree mehr als 53 Meter hoch. Auf 53 Metern ist diese Plattform angebracht, auf der wir uns befinden. Wie man da hoch kommt?? 🤔 Ganz einfach: klettern. 😬 Denn im Baum sind Eisenstangen verankert, die sich spiralförmig um den Baum nach oben schlängeln. Da heißt es nur: gut festhalten. Denn eine Sicherung gibt es nicht. 😲 Der Baum wurde früher als Aussichtsplattform über das Waldgebiet genutzt, da man von hier entstehende Waldbrände sehr gut sehen konnte. Die Wachperson hatte dann die Aufgabe die Feuerwehr zur richtigen Stelle zu lotzen. Allerdings hatten die Leute früher nicht den Luxus einer modifizierten Wendeltreppe. Sie mussten noch mit einem um den Baum geschwungenen Seil hoch klettern. Heute ist der Baum eben für die Öffentlichkeit zugänglich und jeder der es sich zutraut kann hier hoch klettern. Defintiv ein geniales, wenn auch mit adrenalin geladenes kleines Abenteuer. 😎
Only 20 percent visitors managed to climb to the top of this tree. The rest of them only climb few or some part before going back to the ground. So, bear in mind that not every climber photo of this tree you see here is representing the real event (if you know what I mean). The Gloucester Tree is part of a network of bush fire lookouts in Australia's South West forests. It is one of eight tall Karri trees selected to build a lookout to spot first sign of bush fire during 1930's to 1950's. It remains as the world's second tallest fire lookout tree after its colleague who also live nearby, Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree. Chosen in 1947, Gloucester Tree was named after the Governor General of Australia, His Royal Highness The Duke of Gloucester, who was visiting Pemberton when the lookout was being built. It has retired from service as fire lookout now, thanks to modern technology of spotting fire. But visitors can still climb this approximately over 250 years of age Karri tree today and enjoy the magnificent 360 degrees view of the surrounding southwest forest from the lookout platform. That is, of course, if you have the guts to climb 61 meters up. #nature #trees #forest #karritrees #gloucestertree #firelookout #southernforests #exploresouthernforests #exploreparkswa #gloucesternationalpark #PembertonWA #shireofmanjimup #AustraliasSouthWest #perthlife #perthnow #perthvibes #perthisOK #perthfect #SeePerth #helloperth #SoPerth #thisisWA #justanotherdayinWA #westernaustralia #ig_westernaustralia #canon #eosm3
🌳 Gloucester Tree-Pemberton, WA🌳 The Gloucester Tree stands 58m tall and was previously used as a fire lookout. With 153 metal pegs in a spiral staircase formation and no harness it’s not for the faint hearted. Only 1 in 5 people who attempt the climb actually make it too the top. I’m happy to report all members of the Roving Russo’s made it to the peak! #imayofweedalittle #itsnotrain #mylegswerejello #beentheredonethat #nofires #gloucestertree
Quote of the day 📖 ▫️ „Lasse alle deine Bemühungen zielgerichtet sein und behalte dieses Ziel im Blick.“ ~ Seneca ~ ▫️ Wer hoch hinaus will, muss sich auch bemühen und verschiedene Dinge im Leben ausprobieren. Dabei kann wie auf dem Bild zu sehen ist immer nur eine Sprosse nach der anderen hinauf geklettert werden. Ich bin einfach ein Fan von Babyschritten (step by step). ▫️ Das Ziel war es oben auf einer Plattform anzukommen, um dort die fantastische Aussicht zu genießen. Diese Plattform diente damals der Bevölkerung von Süd-West Western Australiens, um Waldbrände lokalisieren zu können. Oben kann man nämlich weit über die Baumkronen hinweg sehen. ▫️ Zurück zu den Zielen. Ich für mich nutze grob gesetzte Ziele und plane nicht ins Detail. Die gesetzten Ziele bleiben eher im Hintergrund und sollen eine Orientierung für das große Ganze geben (bigger Picture). Irgendwie habe ich nie großartig geplant und erst recht nicht alles bis zum Ende durchdacht. Jeder Mensch hat da seine eigenen Methoden und Vorlieben. ▫️ Allerdings stecke ich mir Ziele für Dinge, die ich in meinem Leben unbedingt erreichen möchte. Beispielsweise arbeite ich zur Zeit so viel, weil ich mir einen längeren Auslandsaufenthalt finanzieren will. Mit diesem Ziel komme ich auch durch die anstrengenden Tage, weil ich weiß wofür das verdiente Geld gut ist. ▫️ Ein anderes Beispiel ist das Meditieren. Meditation ist mir so wichtig, um mit all den Reizen der Großstadt umgehen zu können. Zusätzlich halte ich mein Herz für mich und andere Menschen offen und pflege gleichzeitig einen achtsamen Umgang mit meinen Gefühlen. Die Intention ist auch hier zielgerichtet ohne mir dabei Druck zu machen. ▫️ Das dritte Ziel ist der Abschluss des Studiums, um mir auf dem internationalen Markt die Türen offen zu halten. Des Weiteren kann ich zukünftig auch mit erwachsenen Klienten arbeiten. Hier ist das Ziel im Job mit der Zielgruppe flexibel zu bleiben und nicht an einen festen Ort gebunden zu sein. ▫️ Ich wünsche dir gute Intentionen und viel Kraft. Behalte deine Ziele gut im Blick. ▫️ Welche Ziele verfolgst Du? Liebe Grüße, Marvin ☀️ . . . #ziele #intention #zitat #quoteoftheday #seneca #herzensbildung #lebensweg
Gloucester Tree? Completed it. #gloucestertree #gloucestertreeclimb #shitmyself
With every day you take a step towards growth, you may not know it but that will lead to the person you are 20,30,40 years from now. So everyday you make a choice about who you want to be...who do you choose?
Aujourd’hui nous avons grimpé le célèbre Gloucester Tree à 3km de Pemberton. Ce Karri, utilisé auparavant pour surveiller les incendies de la région, mesure 53m. Il faut bien s’accrocher et ne pas avoir le vertige pour le monter parce que les pics en métal qui servent d’échelle sont parfois à la verticale ! Nos petits cœurs ont bien battu ce matin 😍🤗 #australia #westernaustralia #pemberton #gloucestertree #climbing #kari #gloucesternationalpark #vanlifers #roadtrip #globetrotters #travellers #vanlifemoments #vanlifediaries #swisstraveler #discover #discoveries #adventures #dream #coupletraveller #vanlifemood #vanlifememories #travel #voyager #voyage #australie #australieoccidentale #decouvrir #vanlovers #explore #instatravel
Of course we climbed to the top of the Gloucester Tree, 58 meters high 🇦🇺
Arrived in the very green south of Western Australia, picture taken in the Gloucester National Park 🇦🇺

Me and Bro Bro braving it!!! 💪🏽 Climbing the Gloucester Tree 🌳. A 53 metre ascent up to the lookout platform via spiralling metal stakes. This famous GIANT karri tree in the Gloucester National Park is the world’s second tallest fire lookout tree 🔥. Fire lookout trees were spread across the south-west forests of WA before the introduction of spotter planes. The view at the top was incredible!!! 😍 • • • • • • #australia #westernaustralia #pemberton #gloucestertree #gloucestertreeclimb #climb #adrenaline #whataview #beautiful #karritrees #forest #green #freshair #travel #explore #experience #vetlocum #vetchloe

150, 151, 152, 153... how high would you go? We climbed the Gloucester Tree in the Gloucester National Park. 🌳 The Gloucester Tree is a Karri tree which are only found in the South West of WA and are the tallest trees in Australia and one of the tallest trees in the world! 🌳 They can grow up to 90 meters high 🔝 however the Gloucester Tree is only 60 meters high... but that’s still high enough 😳🔝🌳 It was used as a fire lookout tree back in 1947 now visitors can climb up to a platform in its upper branches and admire the fantastic views of the surrounding Karri Forest. With its 153 spikes that spiral the tree only about 20% of visitors actually climb the tree 🌳 It was a bit nerve racking the higher you go but the gorgeous views make it all worth it 🏞😍 #gloucestertree #gloucester #firetower #gloucesternationalpark #karritree #karri #wa #explorewa #westernaustralia #australia #gdayaustralia #explore #lifeontheroad #kidsontheroad #makingmemories #travelingaustraliawithkids #travelingaustralia #exploringaustralia #travelingwithkids
Gloucester Tree, Pemberton @westernaustralia 🌄🌳🍃 @quiencontrolalquecontrola @cor_ter Standing at 53 metres (175ft), it is the second tallest fire lookout tree in the world! And, even though THERE IS NO HARNESS, my mates and I made it to the top and saw an incredible view! #australia #seeaustralia #ig_australia #takemetoaustralia #australiagram #travel #travelaustralia #gloucestertree #yhaoz
Spot the monkey 🐒 ...still can't believe I climbed this 70 metre (230 ft) tree. Just a few rebar pegs sticking out with a fishing net that wouldn't save a 5 year old. Booyah. #safetyisWAsnumber1priority
Can't complain when you have places like this to explore with the English side of the family #gloucestertree #familygetaway
Ces arbres géants ont été aménagés pour observer des départs éventuels de feu. Des barres en métal plantées dans l'arbre servent d'échelle et une plateforme est installée en tout en haut, surplombant toute la forêt. On monte à plus de 50 mètres de haut (pour la sécurité on repassera 😱). On était 4 ce jour là, un seul d'entre nous a eu le courage (la folie ?) de monter tout en haut ! 👏👏 - - - #gloucestertree #australia #oz #worldtrip #tourdumonde #zipworld #safetyfirst
Io la mattina del primo giorno dell'anno l'ho passata a scalare questo alberone da 40m (senza scarpe perché tanto "2 settimane al mare, mi porto solo le infradito"). E nulla, Buon anno! #happynewyear #late #gloucestertree #pemberton #australia #WA #summerholiday #christmasholiday #roadtrip
Climbed over 180 metres worth of tree and came away with blisters on my hands and a little bit of poo in my pants 🌳💩#facingfearspooingpants #gloucestertree #bicentennialtree #diamondtree
Climbing into the New Year with the Gloucester and Diamond Tree 🥳🌲🧗‍♀️ Used as fire lookouts in the early 1900’s, these Karri trees (Eucalyptus diversicolor) are now tourist attractions- encompassing 53m of terror 🙃 . . . . #gloucesternationalpark #gloucestertree #gloucestertreeclimb #diamondtree #westernaustralia #travel

Introducing the It's A Beach Life quilt and cushion series! 🏖️ Yes, I know it's not quite a beach (more like a dam with a tiny bit of white sand trucked in) but spending a few days camped nearby armed with a book and my coffee cup ☕ was just as good as a tropical getaway. We did stir ourselves just enough to take some photos and climb the Gloucester Tree, which at 53m high was fine. Then we climbed the 65m high Bicentennial Tree. And let me tell you that those extra 12m MADE ALLLL THE DIFFERENCE! I went from 'dude, I can do this!' to 'get me down from here or I will throw you off myself!!' 😫 Heights may not be my thing 😣😏🌲 . . . #coastaldecor #colormecosy #colorpalette #oastalhomedecor #homedecor #beachlife #handmadedecor #beachdecor #summerholiday #decorinspo #interiordecor #instadecor #coloryourlife #liveitincolor #colorfullife #betterincolor #coastal #beach #natureinspired #nature #summer #sunshinetherapy #vacayvibes #handmadehome #pemberton #gloucestertree #bicentennialtree #camping #morelikeglamping #scaredofheights

AUSTRALIA ON THE ROAD DAY #20 • 🇦🇺 Gloucester Tree 🎄 If we think to Australia, we imagine deserts and endless plains with low vegetation. It's so surprising then to discover that in the south-west of the Country there are forests with eucalyptus (jarra and karri) that can be found only here and that exceed 70 meters in height and 15 in diameter 🎄 The most fearless, as Leonardo, can climb to the top of the Gloucester Tree 🔝, a huge 58 metres Karri tree, using the iron pegs planted in the trunk 🔨. The less fearless, like Fiammetta, can "settle" to climb a few meters and explore the forest from below 😂 And you? Are you a thrill-seeker? • 🇮🇹 Glouchester Tree 🎄 Pensando all'Australia vengono in mente deserti e pianure sconfinate con bassa vegetazione. Sorprende quindi scoprire che nel sud-ovest del Paese ci sono foreste con tipi di eucalipto (jarra e karri) che si trovano soltanto qua in tutto il mondo e che superano i 70 metri di altezza ed i 15 di diametro 🎄 I più impavidi, come Leonardo, possono salire fino alla cima 🔝 del Gloucester Tree, un immenso albero di Karri alto 58 metri, utilizzando i pioli in ferro piantati nel tronco 🔨. I meno impavidi, come Fiammetta, possono "accontentarsi" di salire qualche metro ed esplorare la foresta dal basso 😂 E voi? Siete amanti del brivido? •  #GloucesterTree #Pemberton #parkexplorers #stepbystep #treesaregood #karry #climbing #natureplaywa #getoutdoors #waparks #forestofthegiants #Gloucestertreeclimb #forest #vertigo # #ontheroadAustralia   #tips4tripsAustralia
